Cass and Linda’s Comprehensive Marketing Program
Home sales with Cassandra Gronke and Linda VybornyWe’ve been helping sellers “get out of there” for a combined total of almost 40 years throughout Lake County, Illinois, including, Libertyville, Vernon Hills, Mundelein, Gurnee, Grayslake, Lindenhurst and the surrounding communities. It isn’t easy these days but we are doing it. We use our staging expertise to make your house stand out from the competition. We partner with our sellers, adding the marketing muscle of Coldwell Banker to make it possible.
Our plan may sound complicated but in plain English, we leave no stone unturned to get you moving and we don’t think anyone can offer you more to get your property sold at the best price.
To provide a comprehensive marketing plan that will promote your home to both the positioned buyer as well as the impulsive buyer. To inform the real estate community and the target markets about your home. To generate a volume of activity that, in turn, will lead to the highest possible sale price in the shortest amount of time with the least inconvenience to you and your family. To build a long term client relationship leading to a successful transaction and future referrals.
If you have any questions or would like to make an appointment call Cassandra Gronke at 847-990-3131 or Linda Vyborny at 847-990-3121 or email us.

“We do not know how to express our appreciation regarding the sale of our house. It may be one of your routine works, but it was a big project to us. This was our first time to sell a house in this country. Without your professional support and cooperation, we might have had a difficult time selling our house. We also enjoyed working with you because of your wonderful personality and working attitude. Once again, thank you for your help.”
~Ken and Michiko
… spent a great deal of time and money promoting the sale of our condo. She was then of great help once again after an offer was received. Her efforts made the sale of our property a pleasant and profitable experience. She is a great asset to your organization.
~Lynn and Patricia Harshbarger
Thank you so much for all the help you gave us during the sale. This wouldn’t´t have turned out so good without you. Thank you for watching over our home for us while we couldn’t´t be there and for doing all the little things that you didn’t´t have to. We are very excited with how it ended up. We consider you a friend, not just our real estate agent!
~Ray and Amy Baker
I want to thank you for all that you have done in selling our house. It is also nice to know that I gained a friend in the process. Thanks again for doing such an outstanding job for us.
